Meizu MX smartphone official: Pentaband HSPA+ and 1.4GHz dualcore

Meizu MX smartphone official: Pentaband HSPA+ and 1.4GHz dualcore

Chinese electronics manufacturer Meizu has finally unveiled its next flagship Meizu MX smartphone, though it's not quite the speed-demon we were originally expecting. A dual-core version running a 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos 4210 chip will arrive before the previously-spotted quad-core version, the faster model not expected to arrive until next year, going on sale in China on New Year's Day. What does MX stand for? There's actually a special reason for such a naming convention, since it actually borrows first two letters from the Chinese characters for the word “dream,” or “meng xiang”. And that's most likely what Meizu hopes it will be; China's dream phone of the year.

Meizu M8 takes on iPhone in WiFi web browsing video test

Meizu M8 iPhone-clone gets reviewed

First the unboxing, now the review.  Meizu's M8 wannabe-iPhone still isn't quite within the grasp of buyers, but IT168 have reviewed an early sample and, despite the delay, come away impressed.  It might never have been blessed by Steve Jobs, but the 3.4-inch touchscreen handset - with a 3.2-megapixel camera and either 8 or 16GB of onboard memory - seems to have its own charms.

Meizu M8 – no, of course it doesn’t look like an iPhone…

Meizu M8 – no, of course it doesn’t look like an iPhone…

So the rep from Meizu, much like the company as a whole, continues to profess their design didn’t come from the iPhone, that their design was completed some time towards the end of 2006, well before the iPhone was released. They still don’t mention anything about the software though, which is almost definitely stolen from Apple.
